In this game, get 4 pairs of students upfront, sitting behind a table FACING THE CROWD with a package box, scissors, wrapping paper, tape, and a bow in front of them.
When the game leader says GO, each pair will have to gift wrap a present…using only one arm each! Specifically, one student must use only his left arm, and the other student must use only her right arm. Have them hold their “unusable” arms behind them while seated at the table.
The first couple to finish their gift wrapping wins. If it is a tie, include the quality of the wrapping job to decide the winners.
NOTE: To ensure that everyone in the audience can see this game, you may want to use a live video feed.
